March Meetup: #EFFsalon at SXSW

For our March meetup, in collaboration with EFF we hosted a “Salon” event during the SXSW festival. Speakers included NSA Whistleblower William Binney, writer Bruce Sterling, and many other advocates for civil liberties on the electronic frontier.

Theme:

Freedom and privacy on the Electronic Frontier are facing their toughest challenges since the birth of the Web. Bulk surveillance programs continue expanding, our secure networks are being systematically compromised, and some state leaders are calling to undermine encryption. How will we effectively preserve our digital rights going forward?

Time: Monday, March 16th, 7pm-9:30pm
Location: Capital Factory, 701 Brazos Street, Suite 1601, Austin, TX
